Am I Too Loud? - The Memoirs of a piano accompanist : Gerald Moore has accompanied most of the great names in the musical world - Chaliapin, Casals, Menuhin, Elisabeth Schumann and Kathleen Ferrier, among many others - and has known them both on and off the concert platform. In Am I Too Loud? he entertainingly depicts their world of constant rehearsal, triumphant performance, and occasional disappointment. He can be warm in his praise and sharp in his observations, if not criticisms: and in a tale told with, as one would expect, perfect pitch there emerges a humorous picture of the 'unashamed accompanist' himself.
